Hi danmurfi
You need to provide some information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number this will enable others
to help you better.
Dependent on whether you have a laptop or desktop may determine how to proceed.
To stop the message appearing there are 2 possible ways, 1: Enter System Setup
& Set Chassis Intrusion to 'Clear' 2: Open up the computer case and check to
see if the chassis intrusion connector on the MB has become disconnected somehow
if it hasn`t and you want to disable it permanently remove the connector yourself
and make sure you tuck the wire out of harms way.
We cannot help you any further until we have your computer details.

It is odd that you would suddenly get this. As phillpower suggested this is typically a setting in the BIOS Setup Menu - used primarily on servers long ago. Most cases don't support that feature any more. Do you have any other odd symptoms, like data and time being wrong, or chksum errors? This might suggest the motherboard batter is bad.
